2017.07.21 - GNU nano 2.8.6 "Kekulé" offers a new feature: the ability
                to do softwrapping between words -- at whitespace --
                instead of always at the edge of the screen.  This can
                be activated with -a or --atblanks or 'set atblanks'
                together with the softwrap option.  This release further
                fixes a handful of rare display glitches, fixes a build
                failure on AIX, harmonizes the quoting rules in the rc
                files, and renames the option 'cut' to 'cutfromcursor'
                (please update your nanorc files before 2020).

GNU nano is a simple and easy-to-use editor for on the terminal.

The tarball and its signature are here:

Specific bugs that were fixed in this release:  (double-width characters not shown)  (softwrap at word boundaries [request])  (misplaced cursor with --so --co --noh)  (build failure on Solaris)  (commenting could not be disabled)  (^X in help lines showing wrong word)  (^T in help lines does not adapt)  (status bar was sometimes not cleared)  (misencodings in the HTML docs)  (inconsistent quoting for 'comment')  (misparsing of argument of 'comment')  (indenting leaves target x unchanged)  (some spaces spilling onto next line)  (word for ^X changes when resizing)  (entry of invalid byte upon resume)
